With designs increasing in complexity and speed, it is more important than ever to ensure your design functions properly. For some device signals, this means ensuring timing of your components. Typically, this involves performing a post-route Design Rule Check (DRC) and adjusting your design accordingly. Issues found in this post-route DRC can require a change in component placement, resulting in additional time and resources correcting the design. With Real-Time Placement Analysis in OrCAD PCB Designer, you can analyze your design, optimize placement and solve timing delay issues BEFORE routing. This tutorial will show you how to set-up and use Placement Vision in your design to ensure timing of your components.

BOM denied. Redesign required. Dreaded words to any engineering team. Obsolete parts, RoHS / REACH compliance issues, inadequate stock, almost every engineer has been bitten by one of these issues at some point. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way. Join EMA Design Automation and SiliconExpert to learn about the common causes of BOM rejection and how to prevent these issues in the future. As they say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

How do you know if a component will fail in your circuit? As the designer, it’s your job to ensure that the parts in your design are within their stress limitations. This can be tedious and time consuming, so shortcuts are usually taken. These shortcuts can range from not doing anything to only measuring certain components in your design that you feel are particularly stressed. This may lead to oversights which can manifest themselves as component failures in the lab or the field.

With all the pressures engineers face to make everything ‘better, faster, cheaper, smaller’ all in less time managing your design data can seem like the least of your concerns. However, data management issues can sink a project just as fast as any design flaw. Effectively managing your design data is a critical piece to ensuring overall project success. Get critical design data management tips and best practices learned the hard way so you don’t have to from the experts at EMA and xPLM.
